The April development resulted from a 29 percent decline in output in industrial manufacturing and a 7.3-percent fall in extraction of mineral raw materials. Generation and distribution of electricity, natural gas, steam and cooled air went up for the first time this year, by 2.6 percent.

Industrial output has fallen in total during the first four months by an average of 23.5 percent compared to the same period last year, the SITA newswire wrote.
